Nuance has released Dragon Dictate 2.5. The latest version of the dictation software introduces a few new features, including a “numbers” mode, Facebook and Twitter commands, and compatibility with the company’s Dragon Remote app, which lets iPhone owners use their handsets as a remote microphone. In addition, Dragon Dictate is now compatible with Microsoft Word 2011, supports more auto-formatting options, and comes with several new voice training stories. The app can also put itself to sleep when it does not receive any input through the microphone for longer than 1 minute. Note that we’ve now learned that Dragon Dictate 2.5 (and Nuance’s other Mac products) are not yet fully Lion-compatible, though you can avoid nearly all Lion problems if you close everything before quitting or restarting. ($179.99 and up new, free update, 13.5 MB)
Enable Apple TV Subtitles
While a video is playing, hold down the Select (center) button on your Apple TV remote to bring up the Options menu, then choose the Subtitles view. If there are embedded or external subtitles associated with the video they will appear in the list. If you are using Silver Screen to AirPlay video to the Apple TV, it will dynamically extract the subtitles and send them to the Apple TV.

"Dragon Dictate 2.5 customers may experience irregular software crashes when opening or running the software on the new Apple OS X Lion. We are currently investigating reports to discover and address the root cause of the issue. If you wish to continue using Dragon Dictate most effectively, we encourage you to maintain Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)."
As they are a long-time sponsor, have you gotten any guidance about the efforts toward Lion compatibility?
I am interested in using Dictate with Scrivener...any experience/hearsay on any OS?
